• Internet telephony
• Information retrieval and searching
• Electronic commerce

Papers describing timely research contributions in HotWeb's areas of 
interest are solicited. Papers reporting on initial results as well as 
papers discussing mature research projects or case studies of deployed 
systems are equally sought out. 

Submitted papers must be neither previously published nor under review by 
another workshop, conference or journal. Only electronic submissions in 
PDF will be accepted. Submitted papers must be written in English, must be
